Why did you choose to attend GSW?

Because of the climate of the south and soccer. Coach Warren Russ and the Athletic Department truly made it possible for me to afford coming to the United States. I am really happy I chose GSW as this place has offered everything I needed to succeed.

Why did you choose your major?

Because I have always been very interested in sports and how to improve performance and prevent injuries. I think it was the right decision as I loved all my major classes.

What are your favorite things to do at GSW?

I love to represent GSW when playing a game for the soccer team, and I also enjoy spending time with my professors and friends which really makes GSW a home for me.

What is your favorite memory or experience you’ve had at GSW (so far)?

I believe the happiest moment I have experienced at GSW was when we beat Clayton State University at home in overtime. They were beating us 2-0 and we managed to tie 2-2 and take it to overtime and win. I scored the second and third goal for GSW so it was a day when I felt that my performance made everyone happy. My senior day was also a very special moment, as well as the day I was named First-Team All-Conference.

What are your plans after graduation?

I haven't decided yet, but I will go wherever I can to follow my dreams of either continuing to play soccer or to coach professional soccer.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to surf, play volleyball, hang out at the beach, watch movies, listen to music, dance and spend time with my friends and family.

Who is your favorite professor(s)?

Dr. Casaru and Dr. Meador
